Film Review: Geostorm
3 out of 5 stars
Reviewed by Lucie B Year 9 for the Student Magazine
Geostorm surprised me and it was clear that it surprised the rest of the audience too (there was genuine applause at the end of the film that I found very funny). Before watching it I did some research and found some highly critical reviews, I ignored them and decided to watch it. The film is expertly directed by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Godzilla), despite the difficult themes and messages it had to portray to its viewers. I must say that although this movie flopped at the box office I appreciated the flow of the movie and the incredible performances from some of the actors like Gerald Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish and Alexandra Maria Lara. I do not want to give away any hints about the film that could be considered a spoiler alert but there are two very important messages that Geostorm delivers:
1) Do not mess with nature
2) Regardless of nationality, religion, colour etc., the planet and the cosmos is one and works better together.
